I. Worldview is described as “a particular philosophy of life or conception of the world” (Oxford). To me, it means understanding and knowing the way another culture lived and lives. It means finding out the way the view things and the way they perceive things versus the way I perceive things.

II. When it comes to the question of Origin many people are left wondering where we came from and what kind of support do we have for any answers that may be given? Well, Isaiah 45:18 says “For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is no one else”. Isiah 45:12 even says that God created man. Identity is raised as another question that many have. Where did we get our identity and how was this decided? Although many scientific explanations can tell us why we look how we look, why we are male versus female, and what genes we may carry that lead to shorter lives, ultimately, God created us in his vision. He gave us our identity. Genesis 1:27 says “So God created man in his image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Jeremiah 1:5 says “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee”.
Meaning and Purpose. I once read a book called “The Purpose Driven Life” by Rick Warren. It was a book about why we are here and it helps us discover who we are inside. So often people ask themselves what the point in life is. Some look to the bible to find answers and they read quotes such as Ephesians 2:10 “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works…” Others may believe that we are here to bring glory to God to those who do not know Him. Isaiah 43:7 “Everyone who is called by My name, And whom I have created for My glory, Whom I have formed, even whom I have made.”.
The question of morality. Although the Bible doesn’t say anything direct about morals, it does say many things that apply to morals. Romans 13:8-10 says “Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.” Galatians 3:28 says “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Both of these scriptures
